Looking for Borthwicks in the Sutherland or Caithness areas

I have spent months looking for information on my G. Grandparents. My Grandfather and his siblings are listed on their immigration forms as being born in Caithness, but my Grandfathers passport says he was born in Rogart. I haven\'t been able to find birth records or a census to verify this information. I know I have family in the area, but have no idea what their names are.

My G. Grandfather Robert Borthwick(B. 1874), My G. Grandmother Margaret (don\'t have a maiden name)(1877), Chrissie (B. 1907), Donald (my Grandfather)(B.1908), Margaret (B.1910), Agnes (B.1912), Robert (B.1915), Johan (B.1918) and John (B.1920). They all came to Canada in 1924 except my 2 G. Aunts, Mary (don\'t have a married name) and Ina who I believe married a McLean. My Grandfather Donald travelled to Scotland to see his sisters between 1973 and 1976 and I believe there was an article written in the local newspaper. I am unsure were the old homestead is,(it was a pile of rocks in the 70\'s), but it would be in either the Caithness or Sutherland area.

Anyone having any information would be greatly appreciated as I am at my wits end.
